Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 Review - IncGamers

IncGamers: A word of warning: too much time spent with Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 may result in the ability to parse the following sentence and others like it, "Destroy each nonland permanent with converted mana cost X whose controller was dealt combat damage by [creature] this turn." Worse, you might start talking like that in public. It’s a dangerous side-effect of most collectible card games and the population must be kept informed.

Like Magic to play this You Must !

Well, bought this on a whim (Having never played magic before) as it was cheap on PS plus and I have to say I'm very happy with it.

Few little bugs in online multiplayer which causes the fight to freeze that I am not happy about.

Now, about the difficulty problem the reviewer encountered: There is more than one deck you have to begin with- the wielding steel (Read: white) deck is much better than the green deck for fighting koth. I had much more success with this deck. Another deck I found to be quite good is the dragon (Red/black) deck as it is fun to play with. I've also had quite a bit of success online with them, especially after getting rid of some of the cards in it and customising the deck. It would be nice if they included the feature to build your deck from the ground up, but I think it is fine as it is.

I don't see where 5.7/10 comes from. I actually think the game is quite outstanding value and can keep you hooked longer than a lot of retail games. If you like card games or strategy then I'd say this game would be at least a 7 or an 8 for you.
